The Ouabache Land Conservancy invites all nature enthusiasts to a fall foliage hike of the Jackson-Schnyder Nature Preserve on Saturday October 21 at 1:00 pm. This hike is to celebrate the eight-year anniversary of its dedication as a State nature preserve. Dr. Dennis Tarasi, Assistant Professor of Ecology and Director of the Environmental Science Program at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, will lead hikers through the tallgrass prairie and approximately 25 species of trees found on the 15-acre Preserve. The preserve is located at 1100 W. Concannon Ave., West Terre Haute, IN 47885. To get to the Jackson-Schnyder Nature Preserve, take Hwy 150 to St. Mary’s Ave and turn west, drive past the St. Mary-of-the-Woods College main entrance, continue west and turn left on Bloomtown Road, go under the railroad and turn right on Concannon Ave. Just past the bridge is the roadside entrance (on the right) to the Preserve. No reservations are required for this free program. Attendees are encouraged to wear long pants and either hiking boots or good tennis shoes.
